|Aw, Brenda. You've expressed yourself and your and Tony's journey so beautifully over the last couple of years. We're all listening. Lots of us have been on the brink or worse. Each of us experiences such loss and sadness in these horrid, unrelenting economic downturn times.
Nothing can correct the wrong that the Wall Street (and deeper) scoundrels brought upon us. Even time will be a very slow healer. I look around and think that a slow and steady plan of recovery is best.
The thing about "things" is that they are little totems that hold our memories, our blood sweat and tears. They are icons that represent our milestones, happiness and sad times. I have a box that holds Bert's ashes. It's a "thing" but, make damn sure I want that "thing" near me. If I lost it, I'd be so sad. If I lost his pictures I'd be more saddened.
So I can understand that it's a very unhappy day, the day Tony needed to sell his beautiful watch. I remember that striking watch. Of course you're saddened.
Now, you move forward in a planned and modest way, thankful for good health and friends and the ability to strike a good life. I am part of the Universe that prays you can make the balloon. We need a bigger Universe!
Love to you and Tony! Faith, strength, and may times prove much, much better.
